I Close My Eyes

D G Gm D A D I close my eyes, it is not hard, D7 And I am back in the old folks' yard. G Gm D Perfect day for lying in the shade.

A picture book to ramble through,
A sky of Amagansett blue,
Lazy taste, a perfect lemonade.

A G Gm I will live forever under sunny skies. A D I close my eyes, hmmm-mmm...

I hum the tune that comes to me -
Bobby Shafto's gone to sea,
Wearing silver buckles on his knee.

I feel a touch of someone's tears.
I haven't sung that song in years.
Funny how it all comes back to me.

Now the song is with me, feel it start to rise,
I close my eyes, hmmm-mmm...

Momma, I'll bet you're beautiful.

(Words and music by Tom Paxton, 1976)
